ALIGNED Insurance Proudly Supports Right To Play Canada
ALIGNED Insurance believes that it is a privilege to handle our clients insurance needs and that it is our corporate social responsibility to give generously and regularly to support the great work charitable and not profits organizations do every day across Canada.
As part of our commitment to give regularly, every month an ALIGNED Advocate selects a Canadian charity or not for profit organization of their choice and ALIGNED makes a donation to that organization on their behalf. In recognition of the great work they do, Janie O’Brien selected Right To Play for the month of August.
About Right To Play
“Through playing sports and games, we teach children essential life skills that will help them overcome the effects of poverty, conflict and disease so that they can create better futures and drive lasting social change in their communities and beyond. Founded in 2000 by four-time Olympic gold medalist and social entrepreneur Johann Olav Koss, our programs are facilitated by more than 16,400 local volunteer Coaches and more than 600 international staff.
Our programs focus on creating positive, sustainable change in three areas:
- Quality Education
- Health Practices
- Peaceful Communities
We believe that play is a powerful tool to change the world. It can inspire individuals and bring together entire communities. A game of football can educate children about tolerance and peace, and a game of tag can teach about malaria. When children play, they develop skills like cooperation, confidence and leadership–all important life lessons. Play provides a retreat from everyday hardships and brings joy and laughter, allowing kids to be kids.”
